Boom, like that... Obviously though, Eugene still lives through many of us and our approach to magic based on his teachings and philosophies. Not nearly as good as having him here, but it is something important.

Thanks so much for pointing me to the Rosenkranz article. It's fantastic. Interestingly my wife and I had just had (as in just before I entered TMF) a discussion about death and death with dignity. The article is especially meaningful to those who knew Eugene. But I think it would be greatly meaningful to everyone. "The 'M' mystery..."

I agree Mike.....the article does hit home to most of us, especially us older folk who have had to deal with the realities of life...and death.  To quote Eugene: "Why is there something and not nothing? Why, indeed, is there anything at all?" Think about it......! It took me a while to get through the Rosenkranz article, stopping periodically to contemplate about what Eugene and his close friends were experiencing. 

As a newbie to TMF I went back to the start of the topic after reading the article to see what had been posted. Thanks to Mike Powers for his insights into his relationship with Eugene, as well as all the others. I really enjoyed the "Remembering Eugene Burger" interviews from "Reel Magic". Anyway, I have been having a marathon for most of the day watching and reading his words of wisdom that I have collected over the years. I can't say I knew him well, but I remember going to the "Magic and Mystery School" hospitality area during the breaks at the old Dessert Magic Seminars in-between the sessions to be with him. He was always surrounded by many teens as well as a couple of us oldies, showing us some of his work. His lecture at our local IBM Ring was a memorable moment of my life where I got a chance to talk with him on a more intimate basis. A picture of Eugene and myself adorns my study.

He IS missed, but he lives on through his legacy of sharing.

Thank you very much for posting this link Luis.

A young man very close to me lives with muscular dystrophy, which will inevitably end his life within the next few years.  Reading Dr. Rozenkrantz's account of his involvement with Eugene's end-of-life passage helps me understand what is to come.

You are welcome Robin... I found it by chance and posted it here after reading it slowly and getting one or two lumps in my throat... Reading it helps see some things from another perspective... uuuff! 

I think we have to welcome Eugene and Dr. Rosenkranz for the article.

This was a beautiful, thought provoking, and powerful tribute to Eugene.

I loved this...

“Wise would we all be to heed Eugene’s last lesson. When a life is lived truthfully, honestly, and fully, when our life has enriched our days beyond belief, more is not necessarily more. When we embrace transition and understand it as transformation we unburden ourselves into a higher quality of living. When we unburden our loved ones through unconditional love and cut loose from conventional self pity, we are never alone in our journey.”

I hope that I’m able to face death with the same dignity and child-like wonder that Eugene did.

Thanks for sharing this, Luis!

Rudy
